Parent at Woodmoor elementary in Bothell tested presumptive positive for coronavirus

The school will be closed on Thursday, March 5 for deep disinfecting.

A Woodmoor Elementary School parent and volunteer has tested presumptive positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus after having been diagnosed and hospitalized with a different illness in February.

The school will be closed March 5 for deep disinfecting.

The parent/volunteer was at the Art Walk on Feb. 28 and volunteered in the classroom on March 2.

“This is brand new information and students are already on their way to school, so we are taking the following steps immediately to minimize any further exposure to our school community,” Northshore School District (NSD) Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid wrote in a letter to Woodmoor parents Wednesday morning.

The following steps include:

Students who may have been exposed in the classroom are going to be contained as soon as they come off the bus and parents will be contacted to pick them up.

Parents of all students can pick up at any time by coming to the front office and checking them out. This is especially recommended for any medically fragile students.

Staff who are considered immune-compromised or medically fragile should work with the administration to leave.

The district has contacted Public Health Seattle & King County and will keep families informed as this is a rapidly changing situation.
